HTC Wildfire Android Mobile
12 July 2014
Excerpt: In the land of the Android Mobile the competition is getting fierce but HTC has always had a pretty high vantage point being the guys who made the first device and all. One of their latest devices to the hit the Indian market is the Wildfire that’s catering to the mid range segment. Here’s a closer look. Form Factor The device is well balanced and light weight making it easy to carry around and comfortable to use with just one hand.
Conclusion: The HTC Wildfire is an excellent mid-range touchscreen with some great features. Though it looks a lot like a small version of an HTC Desire it should be noted that the display isn't as sharp and the phone isn't quite as quick on its feet as it's bigger sibling. Despite this, it’s one of the best low-cost handsets around.
Summary: Priced at Rs. 16,590, the Wildfire is reasonably priced. It also incorporates a very good sensitive capacitive touch screen with a very good QWERTY, something few touch screen phones have. If the poor display resolution and contrast do not deter, we recommend this - a good, affordable Android based solution.
Pros: Well built, looks neat, Good capacitive touch interface, Nice on screen QWERTY, Android based
Cons: Poor display resolution, Mediocre contrast, No memory card bundled
Conclusion: The HTC Wildfire's display seems to be the main sacrifice on the altar of affordability, along with the fairly timid processor. We think there should be a law forbidding phones with great design to be underpowered and paired to low-res screens. Joking aside, if we didn't have these gripes with the camera quality, the HTC Wildfire would be a decent first stop for inexpensive introduction to the world of Android touchscreen phones.
Pros: Interesting design and solid build quality, Affordable, Great battery life for an Android smartphone
Cons: Poor camera quality, Sense UI doesn't look good on such low pixel density, Scroll lag in the browser
Excerpt: The has taken a little something from each of the other flagship devices from HTC –it has the Tattoo’s size and shape, yet offers the Desire’s classy, matt feel. It is wider than the Legend, so offers a more comfortable experience when using the touch-screen keyboard, while the optical trackpad allows navigation without touching the display.
Summary: The HTC Wildfire is a smaller, cheaper version of the HTC Desire mobile phone. The Wildfire's low-resolution display and occasional lag are down sides, but it is well designed, has impressive features and offers excellent value for money.
Conclusion: The HTC Wildfire offers up a comprehensive package of connected treats and dishes out some of the experience you'll find on the best handsets from this company. The experience is a step down from that of the Legend and the Desire and rightly so. It's also cheaper, so those who can't live with the premium price of the other handsets, but want the features will find it here.
Pros: Ticks all the boxes on the spec sheet, great connected experience, easy to use, Android 2.1, great design
Cons: Low res screen, low res video, crashes, occasional touch response slow down
